At a polar opposite to our first Indie highlight (Montagues Mount) we find Warframe. Created by Canadian developer Digital extremes, made up by experienced heads in the world of game development.
We first mentioned this title back in June when it was first announced to be coming to the PS4 from its PC home.
All I can now say is I am very pleased Sony actively sought this game out. It played like a dream on the PS4 and is by far the best F2P (Free to play) title I tried on the show floor.
The visuals and mechanics show what the system can do and even at this early stage why next gen may be the way to go.
The game is playable in the PS4 over 18 zone and its well worth the wait to take your place as a Space Ninja.
This is how I want to play a football game (and indeed all other sport titles) with no pauses while on the pitch no matter how minimal.
The PC is apparently comparable to the next gen sytems and if this is true then I think I will not even bother with the PS3 version, as the look and feel of the game feel sluggish when compared to the version I played.
The big question now is do I go for FIFA on the PS4 or do I upgrade my PC and play the game the way I experienced it today.
Below are some Screenshots to help show the graphics of the PC version and how they really are a setup on the visual front.
To say I need a nap is a bit of an understatement. The barrage of sights and sounds (and occasional smells) was a deluge of information that now on the train in my way home I can try to sort through.
Firstly the site floor is filled with most of my hotly anticipated games for the coming year, but its a real shame that Destiny only managed to muster up a model to pose with and the E3 trailer.
The Big two in microsoft and Sony take up the majority of the real estate in the centre of the floor. It was refreshing to see the 360 and PS3 still getting a lot of attention hopefully both consoles will have a lively if not totally full future.
The Vita was somewhat on the periphery of the Sony main stand this year, this was obvious with the PS4 just around the corner but I felt it was not being shown to its full potential. Just a little tip if your going to be jumping on a Vita at the show bring some headphones as none are supplied at the show. Normal earplugs work brilliantly and it really will make the experience of games like Batman Origins Blackgate that much better.
The retro scene was really well represented as were the indie titles. I'll be highlighting some of my picks of these and the AAA titles a bit later but for now all that's left for me to do is nap until the train pulls in at tonbridge.
